That doesn't come immediately, however: Choudhry has confirmed Project xCloud as 'a multi-year journey,' with public trials of the service not due to begin until some time in 2019. The company has not revealed any information on its pricing, texture and how it will work with your save data (or not) if you also play games on an actual Xbox.
To bring gaming high-fidelity gaming to any device Microsoft needs a fair amount of computational power which is why it has designed the Project xCloud Blade.
Project xCloud was first teased during Microsoft's E3 2018 event in June but this isn't the first game streaming service of its kind. Projects like xCloud will enable players to play their favorite games on any device with the internet and that can be controlled.
Microsoft stated that they are focusing on delivering an wonderful and value-added experience to the existing Xbox players and on enabling the developers to scale to numerous new players across the devices.
Currently, this project is still being tested on some devices, connected via Bluetooth to an Xbox Wireless Controller, which also allow you to play via touch input.
For more information on Project Xcloud, please read the post on the official blog of Microsoft. "Microsoft reckons that they'll be able to take some of the sting out of that work, though, with a "...new, game-specific touch input overlay that provides maximum response in a minimal footprint" in development. The team at Microsoft Research wants to fight the latency problems which are an enemy to game streaming by implementing enhancements in networking topology and introducing new methods of video encoding and decoding.
With the aim to deliver a high-quality gaming experience across a range of devices would probably result in a number of challenges such as supporting a large network that consists of multiple users, low-latency video streamed on a remote location.
Project xCloud will run via Microsoft's Azure servers, which are now spread out across 54 different locations globally.
Microsoft gaming division Xbox is preparing for a life beyond consoles. Microsoft showed a demonstration of the same through a video.
